For the last few days, reports of a missing goat have circulated on social media, with confirmed sightings in Heron Way, Avon Road, Front Lane and even the A127, and on Friday the police thought they may finally have cracked the case.

A Met spokesman confirmed officers were called to reports of the troublesome goat in Avon Road at 11.20am.

He told the Recorder that although eyewitnesses had described seeing the goat in the road, by the time officers arrived, “there was no trace” of the farmyard animal.

There were more sightings near Ivy Lodge at the weekend.

And finally, on Wednesday night, local wildlife officer Anthony Kiddle took to Facebook to confirm that Gloria the goat had been safely returned to a secure enclosure.
